Ron Guth: Most (perhaps all) examples of this date utilize an Old Reverse ("Hub of 1840-1858"). Please report any New Reverse examples.
David Akers (1975/88): Very scarce in all grades. Comparable in overall rarity to the 1871-S but considerably more difficult to obtain in choice uncirculated condition. Generally seen more sharply struck than most earlier S Mint quarter eagles.
